The Cancer Statistics Review (CSR) report previously presented statistics on 29 primary sites and subsites, organized into site-specific chapters. Starting from April 15, 2021, the site-specific cancer statistics are only available within SEER*Explorer, an interactive website that provides a wide range of statistics on incidence, mortality, survival, and prevalence for specific cancer sites. Use SEER*Explorer to obtain detailed cancer statistics presented by age, gender, race and ethnicity, and cancer stage at diagnosis information. Information on tumor biomarkers or morphology is also presented for a selected number of cancer sites. The five chapters that are currently available with this year’s CSR are:

  1. Overview
  2. Childhood Cancer by the ICCC
  3. Adolescent and Young Adult Cancers
  4. Cause-specific Survival
  5. Soft Tissue Sarcomas

There are two ways to access the statistics in the CSR:

  1. Browse the Tables and Figures - statistics are presented in HTML format based on user selections.
  2. Access Contents in PDF - statistics are provided in sections by cancer site and topical groupings.

Read the Introduction (PDF, 727 KB) and Technical Notes (PDF, 1.1 MB) to learn more about the data and statistics included in the report.
